This week I am taking a closer look at mental health, identity, addiction, loneliness and music. How do they all fit together?  Associate Professor Genevieve Dingle PhD and I discuss the dynamics of social identity, its advantages and possible disadvantages and how to create positive social identities using the arts - like music and dance. A really interesting topic. 

Genevieve Dingle is an Associate Professor in Clinical Psychology with a research interest in how groups and communities can influence mental health and wellbeing of adults of all ages. Dr Dingle is a registered clinical psychologist and supervisor with 20+ years practice experience in adult mental health and addiction treatment services. She is the developer of the Tuned In program (music listening based emotion regulation program for young people); the Groups 4 Belonging program (addressing loneliness in people recovering from addiction); and Sharper Minds (stepped care package for monitoring and early intervention of university students' mental health).
